Our New Years Eve we went out to eat sushi with our family and then came home for some indoor "camping" fun. Which I like to say glamping! It's too cold outside right now for camping here and because i'm not fond of being outdoors after dark lol. I love the idea of camping, and I've always wanted to try camping, but I feel the kind of camping I would like to do would get expensive. One of the goals for 2017, which I forgot to share in that long list, is to pay off one large debt. We have decided to take on the smallest debt. Anyhoo, i'll go into more details in a later blog. For this blog post, we went glamping! It's very easy to do, no cost at all and any kid will love this! I did this as a kid with my cousins, but with couch cushions. We found some sheets from our room and laid it over some poles we tied together and we used Christmas lights to decorate. Haylee enjoyed having a tent to sleep in and she loved that we decorated it with lights just like the Christmas tree. My favorite was the food, smores and hot dogs to go with our camping! This was so much fun for the whole family on New Years Eve and the best part is we didn't have to splurge on anything!!! A wonderful way to start 2017!!!

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry!

She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

Nina + Bryan Meadow Creek Farm Wedding

We started the day with sun however we heard the rumbling thunder in the background during the ceremony and started to sprinkle during the reception. It was a humid September day and was sunny outside when I walked into the wedding venue. Bridesmaids laughter, sweet music, and popping of champagne were starting around the Bride's room. The girls were in their matching floral monogrammed robes and helping each other get their makeup done. They looked stunning!

My favorite part was their first look. Nina and Bryan have such a sweet relationship and they celebrated with so much love and joy through the day. I adored how sweet and caring they were during the day, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her during the first look. And she teared up, but had a huge smile standing with him during the first look. It was the best! I loved capturing them!!!

It was truly an honor to be capturing their day! It was such a beautiful wedding! Bryan and Nina were surrounded by so much love and joy fr…

Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm

This turned out to be a great day for the Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm! It was cloudy but warm and perfect for picking strawberries. It was calling for rain but we didn't see a drop thankfully. This was an early Mother's Day trip for us. We have come to this farm every year to pick strawberries and i'm so glad we had another great trip! 
Haylee told all of her friends she was going to the Strawberry patch and she was so excited! It's the perfect date or family outing. It's for everyone! Picking strawberries in the patch and having a homemade ice cream is a great way to spend quality time together. Hope you enjoy photos from our visit to Patterson Farm!
